Comic conventions have grown to become an integral part of the comic book experience, allowing fans to meet their favorite comic creators, buy an array of comic book merchandise, and bond with fans just like them.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has stymied the 'classic' comic convention experience, convention organizers have remained busy. Some have adapted and presented virtual conventions online, others have adapted with smaller-scale, 'socially distant' style conventions, and others have pushed back plans to late 2021 and beyond in hopes it'll be safer then to have fans again.
With that in mind, we have assembled a list of all the upcoming conventions comic book fans should be aware of.
Please keep in mind your safety. Pay attention to local authorities about social distancing guidelines, and check with the conventions for how they're handling the crowds. Be informed and make the best decision for you and those you're bringing with you.
Due to the pandemic, a number of major conventions have yet to announce dates for their next event, but we're keeping a watch out for news about Small Press Expo, Keystone Comic Con, MoCCa Arts Fest, and Motor City Comic Con.
Here is a list of the upcoming comic conventions:
March 26 - 27: WonderCon (Online only)
April 9 - 11: Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo (Huntsville, Alabama)
April 9 - 11: Steel City Con (Monroeville, Pennsylvania)
April 17 - 18: Supanova Gold Coast (Broadbeach, Australia)
